We are pleased to announce our latest Friday Night 5s venue launched in partnership with Brentford FC community sports trust. Situated in the new state of the art sports hub at Gunnersbury Park, West London, the new league will bring the Friday Night 5s unique atmosphere of fun and friendship to the local community.
The Gunnersbury Park facilities include two top-level, floodlit 3G artificial pitches, as well as grass pitches, on-site parking, plus an eight-team changing pavilion including cafe and other sports facilities.
Built on Friendship, Fair Play and Fun – our Friday evening Junior 5-a-side leagues will take place in Gunnersbury Park, West Acton.
The new summer season starts on Friday the 24th April and runs through to the 17th July. There are no matches on Friday 8th and 29th May due to the bank holiday.

We often hear from parents and children that Friday Night 5s Football is a very different experience to what they might encounter in a weekend league. Friendship, Fair Play and Fun are the values of Friday Night 5s Football because they are so important to those who takes part.
The five-a-side format, based around Friendship of boys and girls of a similar age, helps create this atmosphere. Friends come together to design, manage and play in a team that is truly theirs: choosing their own team name, designing their team badge and, if they wish, having their own team strip too.
Our Match Rules and Code of Conduct for Players, Parents and Coaches are there to champion Fair Play in the spirit of the game and ensure Fun for all – win, lose or draw. Referees assess all matches for Fair Play and a Fair Play Award is given at the end of every week.
Gunnersbury Park is our latest Friday Night 5s location. We kicked off Friday Night Fives in Barnes in 1995 with just 4 teams. Today we regularly attract almost 2,500 junior footballers every Friday evening across our three other West London venues playing on 26 pitches. It’s an incredible buzz!
Matches last roughly 40 minutes. Our experienced team of referees and coaches ensure everything runs smoothly, rain or shine!
